I have a set of files based on which I expect to load RDS files like R1-Tn5-NHP-55_NA and R1-Tn5-NHP-42_NA but the code is producing just the name of the 55 files not both 55 and 42.

#standardize N set names  
rename_KP_set <- function(sample_name_vector)  {
 new_sample_name_vector <- apply(sample_name_vector, 
         if (grepl("42",x[3])){     
         } else if (grepl("55",x[3])) {
         } else if (grepl("55",x[3])){
 } else
}) %>% 
     sapply(paste, collapse='-')   

How I can get separate rds files having 42 and 55 numbers or for that matter any rds with some number attached to them?

I have already posted this question on Stack overflow on February 27th, 2023 but have got no answers so I am reposting that in Stack exchange bioinformatics in search of an answer. Any help on this issue will be considered useful.

    $\begingroup$ Your question has a few wording issues. For example, what do you mean by "...a set of files based on which I expect to load RDS files..."? Provide sample input, expected output and actual output. You'll probably figure out the problem on your own as you prepare these items. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Please edit your question and provide us with input files and expected output so we can reproduce the problem and test our solutions. We cannot work on a problem if we cannot reproduce it. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Can you please explain what your function is trying to do? It's not clear to me from just looking at the function. $\endgroup$
